Season with Salt

Salt is one of the most common ingredients in cooking, yet, there's so much more to explore beyond our everyday habits. New culinary choices for salt have crystallized into a wonderful complexity of fresh tastes and serving options for this element.


IN THIS ISSUE, we're exploring salt at a deeper level with a focus on the various types of salts, and their role as the final, finishing flourish to our foods. We showcase finishing salts in a super-easy goat cheese appetizer, soft and chewy pretzels, and a sweet treat, homemade salted caramels.

Bring a Bag!
Bring a Bag, Feed a Family

We'd like to take this time to THANK YOU for making our Bring a Bag, Feed a Family campaign such a huge success! Since beginning the effort in late 2009, you have helped us raise over $1715.85 for the Greensboro Urban Ministry's Food Bank!

Every time a customer makes a purchase and brings their own shopping bag, a dime is put in the "Feed a Family" cookie jar. The contents of the jar are then donated to the Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank. This allows us to help the environment by using fewer disposable bags, and also help Greensboro's families in need!
